Labor Day is annually held on the first Monday of September. It was originally organized to celebrate various labor associations' strengths of and contributions to the United States economy. It is largely a day of rest in modern times. Many people mark Labor Day as the end of the summer season and a last chance to make trips or hold outdoor events.

LINDSAY AND HER PUPPET PALS!
An Exciting Time For All
Wednesday, Aug. 12th "Lindsay and Her Puppet Pals" entertained us for the Summer Reading Program Finale! Nearly 40 children read their way through the summer, giving us a great reason to celebrate. It was a day to remember!
A big thank you to the town of Holderness for the use of the Town Hall. It was the perfect location.
For years, Chaz Esseltine, aka "the Origami guy", has volunteered his time and talent to share the joy of creating Origami at the library. Young and not-so-young have enjoyed making beautiful folded artwork under Chaz's direction and encouragement. The last two years, he has also shared his enthusiasm and skill of building with Legos, with kids, at the library. He only visits us once a year, but his visits are always much anticipated and enjoyed. This year, noting the sad pitiful little collection of Legos at the library, Chaz and his wife Adrienne made a wonderful gift of two HUGE sets of brand new Legos. Thank you so much, Chaz and Adrienne, for your generosity to Holderness Free Library!!
